No-one does a show like Chanel. Don't get me wrong, Vuitton and Saint Laurent can pull off incredible runways, but when it comes to set pieces, Lagerfeld's imagination is like no other.
Case in point- he showed his Cruise collection for Chanel in Cuba on Tuesday, with celebs like Gisele, Vin Diesel, Vanessa Paradis and Tilda Swinton all getting their party on with the locals.
An open air show which allowed Cubans to watch and mingle with the guests? Genius. A focus away from the usual Kendall & Gigi circus? Really pretty brave, given the coverage they generate. Instead we got Stella Tennant (a brilliant British talent) and local Cuban models ruling the runway.
As for the fashion? Well, when does Karl ever get it wrong? Gorgeous ruffles, metallic brogues, panama hats, khaki jackets, and my favourite Cuban touch- the sequinned Che Guevara berets.
Although there's always a sense of fun with Chanel runways, this one really came alive with the party spirit. Here's to next year!
